@deathteam15; I did that earlier and got it working. Had a fantastic game using the Lost and the Damned. Absolutely brilliant work on the mod, the sheer variety of units available is staggering!

EDIT; Meant to reply to your post with this but evidently hit the wrong button.

Hey there guys, just wanted to say I've downloaded the mod because it really does look and sound incredible. However, I've been having problems with it. I can't extract the downloaded folders to the Soulstorm directory, and extracting them in another folder and then transferring other is estimated to take five hours alone for the first part. Any ideas on what I can do?

Extra information; I'm on Windows 7, and neither WinZIP or WinRAR will let me extract the files to the Soulstorm directory.

When you say it doesn't let you, what do you mean? I'm guessing you need to disable User Account Control (Go onto Start, your user icon, 'Change User Account Control Settings', drag the slider to the bottom and click 'OK', but there may be other problems. Oh and thanks for the complements, they're appreciated. :)

It came up with error messages. But I solved it eventually by extracting all three folders in My Downloads, and then moving that folder to the Soulstorm directory. Opened up the game but it didn't have Codex mod listed. Going to install the 3.3 update and see how it works.

Yeah, it sounds like UAC needs disabling to me. Also, I don't think extracting then copying if the 3.3 patch doesn't work, then delete the Codex folder from your SS directory, disable UAC, then try extracting directly again.
